“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” What will you do with the time that is given to you? What is your life’s vision? If I put a blank canvas in front of you, what would you paint? If I say to you, write me a melody, what melody would it be?

I want you to imagine an hourglass. It consists of three parts. The sand on the top of the glass represents the future, the sand at the bottom represents the past, and the sand in the middle represents this very moment. The past is gone, and you cannot bring it back, so don’t dwell on it, rather try to learn from it. The trick is that you really don’t know how much sand you have left on the top. You may think that you have a lot, and it turns out to be little, or you may think you have little and it turns out to be a lot. The only thing you can deal with is what is right here and right now, and if you look! the sand is always moving. Time is the most valuable asset you don’t own!... How much sand do you have left on the top?

What is your‘s vision? What kind of life do you want to design for yourself? It all comes down to decisions you make! Decisions are the ones shaping your life. You are the one steering the wheel. If you want to achieve something in life, the starting point would be to know what is it that you want. Success is a funny word. One wise person said that success is progressive realization of the worthy ideal. So You got to have an understanding of where you are, and clear vision of where do you wanna go, and progressively move in that direction. If you are a hunter in the woods, you should know where your target is to shoot it. Don’t you?

I would like to invite you to take a moment to think. Everyday you have another chance at this game called life. It is a pure gift to you. So why not do the work that makes your heart sing? Why not do the work that makes you move mountains. Some of you are lucky and blessed. Some of you are still seeking. Life is to be lived like an adventure, with the wings of freedom. Whatever it is, whatever it will be, remember this… Dreams are fundamental, and I want you to create the life of your dreams!
